To use DBN, you should be accessing this site from a Java-enabled browser. DBN is completely experimental and is not warranted in any way to make you into a computational art genius. It is not even warranted to work properly. But it works well enough to provide a starting point for young (and old) creatives to discover the computer as a medium. MacOS users please be sure to use the most recent release of MRJ (available at and Microsoft Internet Explorer.

To use DBN, type your program into the right hand side, then click the start button in the lower left corner.
